“Good choice if you want to be near Busch Gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

No problem with check in, staff courteous and called to check after we got in room.

Our room was in the back, on the first floor, other than hearing running children in the room above ours for a few minutes, noise was not an issue.

Room looked renovated, flat screen tv, clean linens, bathroom clean, no issues at all in our room.

Included breakfast--- typical for these places --- waffles, cereals, fruit, yogurt, etc. It was a larger room than I typically find in these motels, so even though crowded, could get a seat.

5 min drive to parking at Busch Gardens, which is why we stayed here, so could get to park when opened wihout having to get up too early.

Immediate neighborhood a little sketchy, but for our one night in the hotel, was not a bother.

I would stay here again if I wanted to be close to BG. Good value for an updated motel room.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

This hotel is pitched as being right next to Bush Gardens. It is, but on the back side of the park which translates in you still needing a car to get to the park, because the hotel does not have a shuttle to take you there.

The rooms are OK, but that is about it. The hallways, the elevator and common areas looked dirty and stink, it looks pretty guetto. The breakfast is pretty basic and unorganized. I will look for better options next time I return to Tampa.

Definitley not a 5 star, but so was the price. Rented 2 rooms including fridge & microwave for 3 nights, well worth the price at 60 bucks a night. Clean room, friendly staff, great location, relaxing pool, internet & breakfast also, no complaints, we'll be back. Our rooms were in the back, parked in front of our rooms, no stairs, no hallways, very accessible.

We could not sleep we ended out checking out that same night, The pool does not close untill 11pm so people were out there partying screaming, there was slaming of doors i called the desk for noise they did nothing.The beds were clean and made but bathroom was discusting, shower head was broken sink was rusty and corroded. The area around it was ghetto and loud! Never will go back!!! If you looking for peace and cleaness this is not the place!!!!

Room Tip: Stay away from the pool area if you decide to go there.

We booked this hotel as it was inexpensive and we wanted somewhere to crash when going to Busch Gardens. Staff were helpful and there was no problem to change our room as the 1st one was opposite the lifts with no natural light. All the rooms are a bit dingy and the hotel (more like a motel) is very tired- but it served its purpose. I very simple breakfast was included in the price. We could walk to Busch (about 20 mins) but I have to say walking back in the dark felt a little unsafe.
